Unbearable pain after filling?



Unbearable pain after filling?

Are you experiencing unbearable pain after filling? If so, you should contact your “dentist near me” to make sure if symptoms like this is normal. Reasons for this may be because of an uneven filling. These don’t happen often, but if you are experience something like this, it’s a easy fix. When the tooth is uneven, the filling could be adding pressure on the tooth beside it. Fixing this is simply a few adjustments and with that, the pain should fade away.

When you call in to talk to your dentist, be very specific and confident about describing the pain you are experiencing. The more specific you are, the faster the dentist could understand the exact reasoning for the pain. If you are experiencing pain or mouth irritation, don’t be shy about calling! The last thing we want is for you to experience unbearable pain after a filling. If the pain is not from an uneven filling in between the teeth, you could be experiencing a malocclusion. A malocclusion is when your upper and lower teeth are making flawed and faulty contact when they close on each other. A symptom of having a malocclusion is having pain in the jaw. Just like a uneven filling in between your teeth, a malocclusion needs just some simple adjustments and you’ll be on your way.

Here are a few things you can do and shouldn’t do, to ease the pain a little before your appointment with your dentist.

The don’ts

  • Don’t eat tough textures such as meats, hard candies, or chewy textures.
  • Don’t eat popcorn
  • Don’t eat nuts
  • Don’t eat raw vegetables/fruits

The do’s

  • You can use a wet black tea bag to help with getting the inflammation down.
  • Take Alive, Advil, or ibuprofen to ease the pain
  • Place ice on pain area
  • Drink water

If you get hungry, try to have softer foods such as:

  • Yogurt
  • Ice cream or frozen yogurt
  • Smoothies
  • Soup
  • Oatmeal
  • Quinoa
  • Mash sweet or regular potatoes

These things help, but you should talk to your dentist if you are having unbearable pain after filling. Just to make sure you’re not experiencing anything serious.
